Margarita Mixology

Ten Ten Pie told me the trick to making a perfect Margarita is Tequila, Controy (Orange Liqueur) and lemon - equal parts of each.

Café Rama makes theirs with essentially the same ingredients except they use Madrilena Jarabe Natural instead of the Controy and a lime not a lemon. They mix two parts of tequila, one part Madrilena Jarabe Natural and lime juice. They also use a splash of OJ.

When making a Margarita for one, I squeeze three limes or in the case of Ten Ten's recipe, one lemon.

Also, my old standard which is sweeter is:

1 part tequila
1 part Triple Sec
1 part Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix
1/2 part Roses Lime Juice

Do not substitute the Roses Lime. That is the key ingredient.

Happy tasting and let me know when you’ve mastered them. I’ll be right over!

Buen Apetito!
